Quinn goes - will Bruce be next?
WITH Niall Quinn leaving Sunderland, William Hill have halved their odds for Steve Bruce to be the next Premier League manager to leave his job, from 4/1 to 2/1 second favourite, with only Steve Kean of Blackburn rated more likely, at 4/9 favourite.
'Niall Quinn's departure probably leaves Steve Bruce without an important boardroom ally and with results not exactly setting the division alight, the manager suddenly looks more vulnerable' said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe.
Hills now offer 5/6 that Bruce will still be boss when Sunderland's last game of the season kicks-off, 5/6 that he will not.
Next Prem boss to go...4/9 Kean; 2/1 Bruce; 8/1 Coyle; 12/1 Moyes; 14/1 Wenger. Others on request.
